    You need a option for , "No, I know more than her, and I don't lean, I rely on proof."


    I am for Liberals at this time because conservatives seem incapable of recognizing their culpability and unable to change the thinking that created this fiasco.

    Until she flaps her gums a bit more it will be an unknown as to how much she actually knows. So far, all we know is that she is aware and that McCain is aware that she is not fully up to snuff on global issues. Does this mean she knows less? Impossible to say until she is quizzed without benefit of script.

    My sixteen year old neice knows more about foreign policy than Ms. Palin does. She's the daughter of a diplomat and has traveled the world extensively. She also, apparently, knows more about birth control and the dangers of pre-marital sex than either Sarah or any of her children.

    Do you mean the current financial crisis, Phil? Check this piece from Bloomberg yesterday:

    Bloomberg.com: News

    You rely on proof & facts such as these are hard to dispute. We now return to topic . . .

    You lean right, you have save Darfur in your signature, and you think Palin knows more than you about geopolitics? Do you think if someone asked her a question about Darfur right now, she would have any clue what they were talking about?

    I would be willing to bet, she wouldn't even know what countries are involved.

    Who knows?? They won't let a reporter get within earshot of her to even ask.

    The Repubs tried to ban reporters from her recent photo op with the Pope until the media threatened "no reporters no cameras".

    My left nut knows more than her.

    Ever been to Europe? Ever met a tourist who is lost that screams: "Why does no one speak American?"...THAT is Sarah Palin.....if she ever went to Europe with her shiny new passport that is.

    Foreign policy is evidently a precursor to the the vice presidential qualification process. Maybe Jimmy Carter can tutor Mrs. Palin on how to handle foreign policy, and everyone will be satisfied. Or, better yet, Barry Hussein can foster a diplomatic syllabus for Mrs. Palin.

    Ah, the brave soldiers of society that cowardly attack a person who takes personal risk, and subjects herself and her family to scrutiny and attack for the betterment of our country. You are very impressive indeed.

    Here's an idea. Make something of your life. Instead of ridiculing those that provide for you, make a contribution to your society; be a productive member of the community - and then weigh in with your armchair opinions.

    The really spooky thing is how the McCain people are muzzling her! I know she is a pitbull in lipstick BUT why today at all of her big world leader photos opps did McCains camp INSISTED NO sound recordings would be allowed AND NO questions asked by reporters at anytime or the photo opp would be ended and reporter escorted out. And WHY did McCain people insist on strict rules in the debate such as time short responses since she will surley be stumped by questions and the short time she can just repeat her prepared generic standard responses they are pumping into her when she gets in trouble. AND WHY is SHE NOT ALLOWED to say ANYTHING in public without PRIOR APPROVAL from the McCain camp. These are the facts! You can't make this stuff up!!!!

    The shit I took this morning, and is now underway in the mighty Pacific will have as much foreign tenure as Obama and Palin. So what's the point?

    Where did McCain live the longest? In a communist country a la Hanoi. Who cares?

    Where's Obama's economic experience? Where's Palin's? Where's Biden's (besides resting on the laurels of the a shit small state).

    Don't be hypocrites on Palin's tenure... unless you are prepared to prepare the #1 pick's background contrary.

    Hmm... maybe. Ive read a few of his CFR articles, he seems pretty well versed in the subject.

    regardless... you are avoiding answering the question. Does Palin know mor ethan you with regards to foreign policy.

    Now she is a hero for accepting the VP nod? Please. And you also have not answered the question. Do you think she knows more than you in the realm of geopolitics?

    Haha! Awesome response! Everyone knows she's not experienced enough but the republicans think she is. If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you're qualified to become the country's second highest ranking executive.

    And as FACEKING said:Do you know more than Barrah Hussein Obama?

    Yes.

    I highly doubt that you are or McCain or Palin combined. But in republican eyes if you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 p eople, become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience. :eek::smile:

    I see that as more experience then Palin....

    I am not asking about experience. I am asking about knowledge. Can you not see the difference. I also am not asking about judgment... just knowledge.

    to be honest.. to get her chops up.

    seriously, if you put Obama to the same task when he first threw his hat in the ring way way back, he'd look just as stupid... almost as stupid as he does now (but that's another point). however, he's had months and months to craft, poll, and get his story down. but let's be honest, it's only rhetoric...

    obama's foreign policy is only rhetoric, not background. obama's economic resolve is only crafted rhetoric, not background. obama's civil service is minimal with tons of rhetoric and hope, not background. obama's military expertise is only rhetoric (and backtracked, a la the "surge" comments and pulling out of iraq with X weeks of him taking office), not background.

    and so on. liberals are banking on someone on what he says, not what he's done, or probably going to do.

    i know many are hell bent to not have a republican in office, but please.... don't knock palin on experience and background, when all of you are banking is un-backed zero track record and change and hope. seriously.

    exactly, knowledge from what you are told to say, versus what you actually have done and implemented.
